Happy Friday…I guess. The Friday at the end of spring break is never quite as happy as the Friday before. It has been an insanely busy week headed into what I fully expect will be two more insanely busy weeks. Still, it’s nice to have break weeks to take care of things like eye exams (check) and hair cuts (check). It has, however, been the sort of week that makes me wonder how we ever have clean laundry.
Other than eye exams and hair appointments, the most visibly productive thing I’ve done this week is order a new phone. My Droid, which I have loved, has not been wanting to play nicely lately. It hasn’t held a battery charge worth a flip and you should see some of the texts it has sent. It just randomly adds words and letters and sends the text before I can fix them. No joke. I can only imagine the utter confusion and helpless laughter of the recipients.
I was leaning toward an iPhone since high quality photos were a prime consideration for me. Hey, I’m a blogger. I just couldn’t bring myself to pay iPhone prices, though, and I do love the Android operating system, so I finally opted for a Samsung Galaxy 4S. It’s supposed to be here today, so that should give me the weekend to play.
I’ve also spent some time this week considering high school curriculum. I’ve got lots of ideas jotted down and I’ll be sharing them with you soon, in case you’re curious. Probably not until after these back-to-back travel weekends, though. I’m starting to break out in hives just thinking about that. (Not really.)
(Our school table midway through the day on an average day)
On a totally random note, I’ve been watching past seasons of Bones on DVD. You may recall that I discovered the show while I was at the hospital waiting for my niece to be born. The way I watch is a convoluted mess. I started at the beginning with Season 1 for my treadmill-walking viewing pleasure. Then, after we finished Castle, Brian wanted to start watching it with me. We started with Season 5 in our room since the earlier seasons are in my workout room.
That means that this week I have finished both Season 3 and Season 6. I watched the last episode of Season 3 just before Brian got home on Tuesday. I knew basically what was going to happen because I accidentally came across a spoiler online (grrrr!), but it still made me cry. Yes, really.
When Brian came home, I mentioned to him that Bones had made me cry. A few hours later, at supper, he looked at me kind of funny and asked why my nose had been red earlier. “Because Bones made me cry,” I said.
His reply, sounding rather surprised, was “You were serious about that?”
Um, yeah. I don’t know why, but I found the whole exchange terribly amusing. Not quite as amusing as this, though:
I don’t know what to think about a cat who insists on drinking out of a nasty bird bath even though she has a clean bowl of fresh water. Freak.
I guess those are the highlights from my not-so-interesting-but-very-busy week. Will I see any of you at Great Homeschool Conventions in Cincinnati next week? Stop by the Geography Matters booth and say hi if you’re there!
